Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes with orange and bourbon. I use 1/2 cup sugar but if you prefer candied sweet potatoes, use the whole cup. Orange juice can be substituted for the bourbon if you are serving to small children.

I have made this recipe just as it is (except with a little less bourbon :) or have combined it with a sweet potato souffle recipe and it has been phenomenal both ways. Whenever Thanksgiving comes around my friends are constently asking for the recipe. To combine it with a souffle recipe I simply fold in one or two eggs and add about a teaspoon of vanilla to the recipe. I then add a crubled pecan topping that consists of pecans, brown sugar, and butter. Yum!!

Great dish! I loved the addition of the orange flavor and zest in sweet potatoes! No bourbon and don't need marshmallows - it's sweet enough. Maybe candied pecans on top would give it a nice crunch?
